How Does a Top Pet Franchise Land on the Entrepreneur Top Growth Franchise List?

Our success is built on our 30+ year passion for people, pets and the hard work and dedication of our amazing Franchise Owners. We’ve just been ranked #104 in the top 150 franchises in the first-ever Entrepreneur Top Growth Franchise List. This is a newly created accolade that showcases franchises with positive franchise unit growth (at least 5 units) in North America from July 2016-July 2019.

With more than 500+ stores nationwide and no plans to slow down, we couldn’t be prouder of our Franchise Owners and our corporate team for helping us achieve alpha-dog status in the pet industry.

Own the brand that continues to outrun the competition.

We’re also honored to add another ranking as one of the best franchises to own to our awards shelf —The Entrepreneur’s 41st annual Franchise 500 ranking right next to our win as Entrepreneur’s #1 pet store franchise of 2020—a ranking we’ve held for 6 years running.

The Entrepreneur’s 41st annual Franchise 500 ranking was no walk in the dog park, either. More than 1,100 companies competed in the “Best Of” category, and those that rose to the top reveal latest trends as well as franchises that continue to evolve to keep going strong year after year. The ranking criteria included:

  1. Costs and Fees
  2. Size and Growth  
  3. Support and Training  
  4. Brand Strength  
  5. Financial Strength and Stability  

Get in on a business model with sustainable growth.

The Entrepreneur Top Growth Franchise Award proves our Franchise Owners have what it takes to really go the distance. “By maintaining steady, sustained growth over several years, these franchises have demonstrated that they have the systems in place to support their Franchise Owners and help them become successful,” says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur’s editor in chief.

Jason also acknowledged that current conditions are unpredictable but stressed that history can be a good indicator of future performance. “As these and other companies around the country face unprecedented challenges, they may see their growth slow, but that record of success could prove more important than ever,” he added.

The numbers are in our favor, now more than ever.  

Our strong $2.2M AUV* helps us lead the pack in the rapidly growing pet industry. Our commitment to be the go-to pet resource in communities nationwide continues to make a Pet Supplies Plus franchise opportunity attractive to new investors and current store owners.

Why is now the right time to invest in our pet store franchise?

Demand is booming.

Pet lovers love spending money on their pets, and Franchise Owners keep adding additional stores due to their success. The pet industry is an essential industry during COVID-19, and we adapted our business model to pandemic-related challenges to help us keep our Franchise Owners, employees, neighbors and pets safe, healthy and happy.

Neighbors know and trust us.

We combine big box store selection with a small-town pet shop vibe to create a place that our neighbors know and trust for great service and selection. But behind the scenes, it’s our strong business model and steadfast support for our Franchise Owners that make us one of the best pet franchises to own.

We’re growing faster than a greyhound. Join us.
